    It's on a pipe, over a river which we walk along quite often, not been for a while - you used to be able to walk over the pipe into the next field but it's been blocked. And now, this... Impressive but who did it?

    Anyone?
    No one even want to have a look-see?
    Or is it so smackingly obvious that I just look foolish? :eek:

    Health and safety! Wouldn't want any one falling in and getting wet!
    When I was a kid half the fun of crossing things like this was the fear of a soaking. :D

    i very much doubt it was anyone on here....

    and if your on about the fencing then its either local water authority or the council....

    if its the mess.. then thats what happens when the river overflows slightly....mainly after a lot of rain.

    I would say the council.. most of our pipes etc over rivers have them now too.

    A prime example of me thinking I'd put down what I was actually meaning in my head but didn't put it in words.... :eek: :eek:

    I meant the wood bits.... I doubt the river has ever run that high, to make them go on the pipe....
    It looks like a den of sorts....?

    It just looks like debris that's built up from the river flowing a bit higher and getting stuck on the river bank and on the pipe/syphon. If you know who's in charge of it, then I'd give them a ring, when you get a build up of debris like that, particularly large logs, it changes the way the river flows and you can get something called scour, where the change in currents alters and cuts away parts of the river bank, making it unstable. It's something I have to look out for in my job with any structure that involves water, as it can cause collapse of even quite large bridges.

    Could have been beavers.
    If the water reached to the underside of the pipe, it might have provided the perfect basis for a beaver to build his den on top. They woudn't know the water levels would drop again.....

    If Beavers have done it, there would be chew marks at the ends of the branches. Is there?
    If not it looks like debris from a very high river to me.

    we don't do beavers here...It's just reeds and crap from high water.

    With all the flooding weve had round here recently I think its probably just bits of wood etc thats been caught up when the water went down, I cant think of a native animal who would do that deliberately anyway. Unless its the beast of Linthwaite :eek: ;)
